Hello everyone,

 

I am working on a book right now called "How I Quit" which will be a collection of 30-45 brief essays from former smokers on how they successfully quit smoking. Each interviewee will essentially write how they started smoking, the struggles they had over the years (health, failed attempts, etc.), ultimately how they overcame the addiction and end with tips/tricks that worked for them and, finally, how it has bettered their life.  Each interviewee will be only identified by name (first name and last initial), and age. 

 

This 'interview' will be more of a free-flowing article you will have written as if you were explain your story to a person for the first time, so can be done 100% by an email response.

 

1) Must have smoked at least 15 years.

 

2) Must have completely quit smoking at least 1 year as of today and off nicotine replacements as of one year today.

 

My goal is to show smokers struggling with this addicition different stories of people all in one place (this book) of people that have been there and that can offer them some encouragement.

 

If interested, please email me at rtrapp03@gmail.com and give me a brief paragraph on your backstory (age, how long you smoked, how long you have been a non-smoker, etc.).

 

I will give each person a free copy of this book and full credits for their story.

 

Thank you,

 

Ryan Trapp

This is the reason why QuitTrain was started.  Not only do we have these stories in one place, but the reader can also ask questions, post SOS's and can get encouragement in real-time.  :)

 

There are some great books out there already about quitting smoking like Allen Carr's and Joel Spitzer's materials (which are completely free) so what will your book offer that is different than support forums such as this and other books already published?  Do you have a publisher already?  Are you a former smoker?

About us

QuitTrain®, a quit smoking support community, was created by former smokers who have a deep desire to help people quit smoking and to help keep those quits intact.  This place should be a safe haven to escape the daily grind and focus on protecting our quits.  We don't believe that there is a "one size fits all" approach when it comes to quitting smoking.  Each of us has our own unique set of circumstances which contributes to how we go about quitting and more importantly, how we keep our quits.
